Well, I really feel like words can't describe the trip we took to Sundance. I think it was one of the best trips Austin and I have ever taken together. The whole trip was amazing! I could talk about it for a week straight, but I'll give you the short story. We stayed busy the whole time arriving Thursday evening for dinner; we spent two full days skiing and went to Park City one of those nights. Then we spent the next day snow mobiling (which was one of the coolest things I've ever done), followed by a massage, dinner, and then the hottub! Every meal was to die for. We tried elk, buffalo, and more. We are back tired but totally rejuvenated, if that's possible. It was an amazing vacation! And thanks Nana for watching Westen;)
This is a picture of us right before we headed down the mountain on our second day of skiing. We're on Mt. Tamanogos. Beautiful! For more pics of skiing and more click here. For pics of snow mobiling (you must look at these) click here.
This is a picture right outside our cabin. The walkway was covered with snow each morning when we woke up. It was sweet!
We put a little robe on Westen this morning instead of getting him dressed for the day. We just thought it looked too cute! It's a little short which makes it look even funnier:) And below is the backside.
We had another birthday party in FL for our friends and family here. Westen got to play with his friends in his new playroom. He's taking over our house! For more pics of this party click here.
We left for KY on Christmas Eve to fly into the cold weather. We had a bit of a non-traditional Christmas this year due to my Nanny's passing on December 28th. That aside, the Brownlee family had a wonderful Christmas. Austin and I spent Christmas morning watching Westen attempt to open gifts. He needed help unwrapping but he did like playing with his new toys. I think the guitar was his favorite (like mother like son). The day after Christmas, we shared company and gifts with my family. It was the first time in a few years that my immediate family (the 6 of us) were all in the same place at the same time. It was a time to cherish. There was a harmony of oooohs and aaaaahs from the grandchildren as each new gift was opened and the adults couldn't help but smile the whole time. I know it was a Christmas we'll remember.
Above is Westen on Christmas morning. Too cute. For more pictures of opening gifts, click here. Below is my immediate family that I mentioned. It was such a sweet time for all of us, especially with the passing of my Nanny. For more pics of our trip to KY, click here.

Hi and welcome to our blog! I am Kate - wife of super high energy, super republican, super fun husband, Austin, and mother of 2 adorable, sweet boys - Westen and Baron! And mother of our eldest child, our sweet Boston Terrier, Cousey! Yeah, I'm outnumbered 4 to 1 so we have a home filled with rough-housing, trucks, trains, sports, you name it! I am what, over the years, has been called homemaker, housewife, and stay-at-home mom. I dare not say what today's society may call me (I kid... I kid!) I love being home with my boys and attempting to make my house a home. I'm what my mom calls "crafty", but feel more like a novice and hope to improve on my DIY and home-making skills. This blog is a way for us to share our adventures with our friends and family. To learn more about us, click here. Enjoy!
